Election Economics MCSS Conference Session

Presentation Starts – 11:00 a.m. 
Presentation Ends – 12:00 p.m.

Grant Black, associate director of the Economic Education Center, will present Election Economics in a session at the 2020 conference of the Missouri Council for the Social Studies at the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis. The session will help teachers bring the excitement and issues of a major election year into the classroom and empower students to be good decision-makers. The session will highlight how to use current and historical issues related to elections to stimulate student learning – and will show how economics can explain voter behavior, election outcomes, and the effects of government policies. Participants will learn how to use economic reasoning to explore hot topics like free trade, immigration, minimum wages, taxes and government spending. Teachers will also be introduced to a wide range of multimedia resources ready for use in the classroom.
